We’ve known for months that sometime-revered, sometime-reviled filmmaker Kevin Smith would helm an outing of The Flash Season 2, and only weeks away from its end, we now know what to expect from the erstwhile Silent Bob. Not only will “The Runaway Dinosaur” bring us a still-shaken Flash, but an older, thought-dead foe from the series’ early days.
Flash fans have known for some time that Kevin Smith would direct an upcoming Season 2 episode, though response was somewhat less enthusiastic when Smith teased Jay and Silent Bob co-star Jason Mewes on set beside him. Now, Smith confirms that Mewes at least will appear in the May outing, though not quite hanging outside of Jitters.
Kevin Smith directing an episode of The Flash is a notable enough event that we’d expect the Askewniverse director to leave his personal stamp, and a new tweet suggests he might leave two. Jason Mewes has been observed on The Flash set, so might Jay and Silent Bob stand vacantly in a parking lot while Barry Allen whizzes by?
As with most of his films, reception to news that The Flash had hired Kevin Smith to direct an outing proved decidedly mixed, but another comic name may help steer the course. X-Men: First Class writer Zack Stentz will pen the upcoming Flash episode, which has already entered production.
Any DC fan worth their salt well remembers that fan-favorite Kevin Smith came very close to bringing us a newer, weirder Superman, but now Smith has his eye on a different Justice League-r. Smith will direct an episode of The Flash down the line, if you wanted to see what Jay and Silent Bob thought of the Arrow-verse.

Superman Lives is one of those great projects that might have been, like Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune or Richard Stanley’s The Island of Dr. Moreau — like both of those films, Superman Lives now has its very own documentary examining the film that never was and the speculation surrounding it. A new clip from The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? features never before seen footage of Nicolas Cage’s costume test in which the actor wears a version of the Superman suit.
Straight from Hall H at Comic-Con 2014 comes the 'Tusk' trailer, our first look inside Kevin Smith's upcoming horror film. Just be warned, you may never look at a walrus the same way ever again.
Once upon a time, Nicolas Cage almost played Superman. In a movie directed by Tim Burton. From a script by Kevin Smith. Which was based on the iconic "Death of Superman" comic book storyline. And then it all fell apart, transforming it into one of Hollywood's greatest "What if?" narratives. 'Superman Lives' may have died before making it in front of cameras, but at least the new documentary 'The Death of Superman Lives' will give us an insider's look at what went wrong.
In 1995, Kevin Smith followed up his directorial debut 'Clerks' with the comedy 'Mallrats,' starring Jason Lee and Jeremy London as two nerdy friends who, recently dumped by their girlfriends, spend the day at the local mall trying to win them back. Featuring an ensemble cast of Smith regulars (and a then relatively unknown Ben Affleck in a supporting role), the film wasn't quite a box office success, but went on to become a cult classic following home release. 19 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
